Elden Ring Heretical Rise Puzzle Guide

This guide will help you complete the Heretical Rise tower puzzle in Elden Ring and get your hands on a legendary spell.

Among all of the tower puzzles in Elden Ring, you will have to work your brains a bit more to solve the Heretical Rise puzzle. This is because the only way of reaching the tower is by using an invisible bridge.

However, do not fret. The following guide will tell you what you need to do to unlock the Heretical Rise tower in Elden Ring.

Heretical Rise location in Elden Ring

You have to make your way to the Mountaintops of the Giants to find Heretical Rise in Elden Ring. The tower is located on a cliff near the lake in the northeastern region of the area. It’s the lake where you fight the optional boss, Borealis the Freezing Fog.

Heretical Rise Tower is located across the ravine and has no visible route to access it. The entire puzzle of the Heretical Rise tower is getting to and climbing the tower itself.

Elden Ring Heretical Rise puzzle solution

If you get to the cliff on the opposite side, simply drop a few shining stones and you will realize that there is an invisible bridge leading to the tower. Follow the bridge and keep on dropping stones ahead of you to make sure you are stepping into safe areas.

At the last part of the bridge, it takes an abrupt turn to the left and a spiral staircase leads into the tower. This is the main point where dropping stones will help you the most.

If your stone falls off into the ravine, try throwing one to your left and you will find the staircase. The staircase also has a slight glow that makes it easier to detect it.

If you don’t have the stones, simply keep on passing time at the Freezing Lake Site of Grace until you manage to get a snowstorm. The falling snow from the storm will interact with the invisible bridge, making it easier to detect the path ahead.

If you have enabled your multiplayer components, you will often find messages left behind by other players on the bridge. If you do find such a message, there is a good chance that a player has marked the path for you.

Inside the Heretical Tower, you will find two of the flying mannequin enemies. Defeat them and head upstairs. Another mannequin will block your path on the stairs, so don’t panic roll and fall off the ledge.

At the top of the Heretical Rise tower, you will find one of the Legendary Sorceries in Elden Ring, the Founding Rain of Stars spell.
